Man those comments from Jerry's daughter ere so heartbreakingly sad. I have to hope and believe that there were some brighter moments too during the times that JG was clean and healthier in the late 80s and 90s. It's a shame that those darker moments are the ones that scar and burrow deep into the psyche. I'll hope she has or will one day come to terms with the darkness and learn to hold on the joy.

She did, early on - Annabelle seems like a chipper lady, and she did have brighter moments with her dad as she grew up.

The last time they met in '95, she brought her fiancee to meet him.
"He gave us these big, drawn-out lectures about how to make a marriage work. And it basically boiled down to, 'Don't live together, don't see each other. Have separate houses and have somebody to take care of your stuff.' I'm like, 'That's very realistic, dad, thanks!' But he was totally serious. He was very nervous as well...he was expected to do some fatherly thing, and he was always terrified of that kind of stuff - having to lecture or give opinions or advice. He was very hands-off, and this was putting him on the spot a bit."
